Baked Eggs & Ham
A unique and delicious Easter brunch dish!
2 cups prepared mashed potatoes (cooked, seasoned)
2 cups diced ham
6 tsp fresh chopped chives
4 large eggs
A dash of salt and pepper to taste
6 tsp parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp heavy cream
4 14-ounce ramekin dishes
Preheat oven to 375F. In a buttered ramekin dish, add ½ cup cubed ham. Top with ½ cup mashed potatoes and then, using the back of a spoon, make a slight indent in the mashed potatoes. Sprinkle 1 ½ tsp of chives and parmesan cheese over the mashed potatoes and then crack an egg on top of the potatoes.
Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and then top with 1 Tbsp of heavy cream. Repeat for the remaining ramekins. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the egg whites are completely set and the yolks have cooked to your desired consistency*.
* We recommend baking until the yolks begin to thicken, but are not fully cooked.
Did you know?
Spooning a small amount of cream over the egg before baking helps prevent the egg from drying out as it cooks! Also, if your ramekins are a different size, simply adjust the amount of ingredients to fit your dishes.

Significantly lower fat by substituting chopped turkey for ham and fresh cooked, diced potatoes for prepared mashed potatoes and subbing low-fat milk for heavy cream. Lower sodium by replacing ham with low-sodium meat or fresh steamed veggies, by using less or no parmesan cheese and by using a salt substitute instead of table salt.
